About the property

2 BR, 1 BA with mountain views and close to trails, waterfalls, Brevard, and HVL

Enjoy beautiful mountain and valley views from every room of this private treehouse located minutes from the entrance to Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest, Brevard, and Hendersonville. Hiking and biking, as well as kayaking and canoeing opportunities abound. After a day of hiking in the forest(s), trout fishing or tubing on the Davidson River, tooling around downtown Brevard or downtown Hendersonville, come home to relax in your own private retreat. Winter stays will allow you to enjoy the cozy wood-burning stove (with all supplies onsite and ready for you), while Spring and Summer offer opportunity to open the windows and listen to the sounds of nature and enjoy the refreshing, cool mountain breezes. In the Fall, you'll be nestled among the vibrant color of the changing leaves. Regardless of the time of year, you'll want to be sure to catch the sunset over the mountains!

Awake the next morning to views of the mountains from the expansive windows in the master bedroom or sleep in with black-out shades on the snuggly, comfortable queen-sized bed with luxurious linens. Enjoy breakfast on the porch in your pjs. Or take a brisk morning walk along the mountain on the gravel road.

The second bedroom is perfect for kids, if you decide to bring them with you. A brand new lounging futon gives opportunity for reading, playing games, or bird-watching, or extends to a full-sized bed for sleeping. A desk also allows for the quick check of emails or time spent writing about the adventures of your stay. The second bedroom is nestled between the master bedroom and the main living area, with a pocket door on either side to allow for privacy, though Mom and Dad will have to walk through the 2nd bedroom to return to the main living area of the house.

The bathroom is recently renovated with white, subway tile around the tub and lavatory, and fresh, new fixtures and linens.

A cozy kitchen is stocked with the essentials you need for meals in the home, if you choose to bring food with you, though you may also enjoy trying one of the unique restaurants Brevard or Hendersonville has to offer. Some of our favorites are Mayberry's and Blue Ridge Bakery on Main Street for lunch, and Marco's Pizza (also on Main Street) for dinner in Brevard. If you want to go to downtown Hendersonville, you must take in the long-standing local favorite Hotdog World or newcomer Hen-Dough (chicken and doughnuts!) for lunch. West First for wood-fired pizza and Never Blue for eclectic tapas fare are among our favorites for dinner on Main Street.

Come relax and rejuvenate in our little retreat on the mountain. We look forward to your stay.

About Joe and Sandy Worley

Joe grew up in these mountains and Sandy has been here for 25 years. We love this area and enjoy introducing others to the beauty and uniqueness it has to offer.

Joe and Sandy Worley purchased this house in 2016

Why Joe and Sandy Worley chose Penrose

We purchased this property because it enables us to slip away from the busyness of our daily lives without having to travel very far. We live in the neighboring county and treasure quiet moments to relax in this house, enjoy getting away and unplugging with our kids, and visiting the Brevard area restaurants and hiking/biking trails. We want it to be a blessing for others coming to visit this beautiful area.

What makes this house unique

The view from the porch instantly took our breaths away when we first visited our treehouse. Once inside, it is open and airy, while maintaining a cozy and fun atmosphere. How many times do you get to stay in a round house? We love the refreshing breezes that blow with all of the windows open and being able to see the beauty of the Western North Carolina mountains from every room in the house.

Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cabin had a wonderful view, was very well maintained and offered everything we were looking for. Even though we had some very cool nights the stove kept the cabin very warm and in the morning we were still very comfortable without any additional heat.

The cabin looked recently remodeled so everything seemed new and fresh. The drive up was not bad but would recommend arriving in daylight the first time.

The location was great for our stay and put us close to DuPont and central to Brevard, Flatrock and Henderson.

We would be happy to stay again.

Beautiful, amazing views, very clean

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed spending a couple of days in this tree house. It was an adventure to stay in the forest, and could not ask for better accommodations. The kids are already begging to go back!

The treehouse is a very nice, peaceful place to relaxe and unwind. Lovely views from all the rooms.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. It is right by Dupant State Forest and Pisgah National Forest. The waterfalls were gorgeous! Even though it had been rainy and flooding we were able to get in some trout fishing.

I highly recommend this for anyone wanting a weekend getaway or longer!!

Thanks again Joe and Sandy!🙂?
